So, I admit I have done this for many many years although, I certainly never start every sentence that way. Neither am I a millennial. Born a few months prior to the 'official' baby boomer generation. It isn't new but perhaps catching on a little too much with some. It is kind of an easy out to continuing a thought, proper grammar or not

"so" just means someone is going to steer the subject.

When you hear " yall wont believe this sh**..." thats another matter.

I don't think that's a common expression here in England.

So I find myself wanting to poke my ears with sharp sticks when I hear "so" used in such a manner, followed by the up-talk at the end of the sentence, and want to poke my eyes with sharp sticks when I see overuse of exclamation points in business writing, web site text, emails, and media stories!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I've noticed this creeping into UK media and politics over the last year or so.
So I wonder to myself what's it all about, why is it happening, am I missing some useful linguistic trick in my debates with fellow humans?

So it was an interview I watched the other night with a talking head politician where they started every answer with "So" and I'm sharing it here due to my noticing this increasing phenomenon.

So what's the deal ATS, is this the way forward?

So to anybody who may feel traumatised if this turns into a hit and run OP where I don't reply much, it's not you, it's me, I love you, and just wanted to make an observation.



Oh my crap, YES. This started bothering about a year ago when nearly every person interviewed on NPR would do that.

Interviewer: How was your day today?
Interviewee: So, it was a decent day.
Interviewer: Was it raining?
Interviewee: So, not really.

Nobody knew what I was talking about when I brought it up on Facebook back then so thank you for catching this! It's been bugging the crap out of me.
